Very limited in production, the Tête de Cuvée label presents Bouchard Finlayson’s cameo selection of the top Pinot Noir barrels from any particular vintage. Regal and focused, with silky layers of ripe blueberry and vivid plum that shows touches of spice and espresso. Restrained initially, but gains depth over the length of the palate and lingers effortlessly on a refined finish. Polished tannin integrates well, but the wine demands patience to reveal its full potential.
Ageing potential: Best from 2020 through 2030
Serving suggestion: An ideal companion to Sunday lunch or that special occasion dinner – Coq au vin being a firm favourite. Enjoy with wild mushroom-topped rack of lamb, served pink, or simply a seared piece of fresh game fish.
